Sidebar of Mike Ward story[edit]

In regards to the "Are trusty camps a weak link in Texas prison security?" story, the sidebar says:

Sidebar of second Chron story[edit]

The January 20, 2011 Zain Shauk "Prison on the block":

  • "The Central Unit prison in Sugar Land houses slightly more than 1,000 prisoners, but the facility is ripe for closing, budget cutters say."
  • "The unit currently runs the state prison system's soap and detergent factory, a small set of farms, a mechanic shop and freight transportation terminal."
  • "The Central Unit's staff and inmates could be placed in other institutions, officials said, but the loss of 1,060 prison beds would be felt."

School zoning[edit]

Because Central has staff housing..

  • Elem: Cornerstone or Lakeview
  • Mid: Garcia, Sartartia, or Sugar Land
  • High: Austin or Kempner

I'm gonna ask FBISD which schools the staff housing is zoned to. WhisperToMe (talk) 07:25, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

  • Turns out the Smithville units have their own addresses, so based on the FBISD Edulog's school zone locator Smithville is zoned to Lakeview, Sugar Land, and Kempner. I am not sure if the main prison property has other employee housing. WhisperToMe (talk) 13:48, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

BTW "2003-2004 SCHOOL BUS SCHEDULE." (Fort Bend ISD) shows that school buses stopped in front of Smithville. The buses are for Lakeview, Sugar Land MS, and Kempner! And "Central" ("Circle Drive", "Central (Prison)") reveals that the schools for the main portion of the prison are Walker Station (this is the only bus destination for Walker Station ES), Sartartia, and Austin HS.

Central Unit Closing[edit]

http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/story?section=news/local&id=7907796 I just added the announcement that Central Unit will be closing. However, the article will likely need some tweaking here and there to update references to "if" it closes. Alden Loveshade (talk) 01:43, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

  • It closed - The moment that the state legislature said that its funding would end on September 1, it was doomed. WhisperToMe (talk) 08:26, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
